Google Launches Docs and Sheets ‘Add-On Stores’

Google on Tuesday launched separate add-on stores for its Google Docs and Sheets products. To browse add-ons directly without navigating to the stores first, just hit “Get add-ons” in the Add-ons menu of any document or spreadsheet. Add-ons in the stores are created by developer partners that give users more features in their documents and spreadsheets. Once you install an add-on, it will become available across all of your documents or spreadsheets. Since Google Docs is in the cloud, you can start using the add-on in question right away; Docs and Sheets add-ons are powered by Google Apps Script, the company’s server-side JavaScript platform with virtually no startup time. Developers should note add-ons are in preview right now, but the tools and APIs are available to everyone. You can build a prototype for Docs or Sheets and then apply to publish it.
